Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Bunny and a Bunny Coloring Page. Use it for a Line Art bunny project or color it in naturally — both make a great spring art project for kids!
There must be an artist somewhere who originated this look of a furry bunny line drawing, as many variations have been all over Pinterest for awhile now. It is a great idea, having the black and white drawing on the colored background, but the examples I saw were either to complex or way too simple. As in, coloring page simple.
Who needs that when the basic bunny head is really pretty easy to draw? And if students then lightly plan some rows with a pencil, lots of skinny marker lines can be added in an organized way.
Lastly, cut him out, leaving a bit of a white edge, glue to a sheet of your favorite color of paper and you have fun drawing with lots of contrast too. (Psst, one of the Principles of Design!)

Easy Bunny Face Drawing
Spring and bunnies just go together, regardless of the holidays you may celebrate this time of year. So adding a large (and might I add pretty cute!) bunny drawing to your collection of spring art projects is a no-brainer.
This tutorial in particular is one of those that is perfect for younger elementary students, even kinders. Even if they are just learning how to follow step by step instructions, this might be a good one to try out. The recognizable shapes and lines (circles, half circles, curves, zig zags) are all familiar and easy to recognize. The fact that they are all placed symmetrically on the paper is a plus too.
There are lots of coloring options for this bunny, once the drawing is finished. Students could go natural with a combination of brown, grays and white, or completely abstract like a made up Easter bunny too. The sample shown above was actually layered with crayons, gray and gold first, brown on top. Not all crayons will do that, but it’s always nice to know some do, in case that’s all that is available.
